That's Krafty Thursday#49 - Adore.......

Oh and I ADORE this stamp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yum, Yum, Yum!!!!  This is from Memory Box and I saw it about a month ago at my LSS, but it was sold out.......I ordered it and completely forgot about it, until they called me to tell me it was in! How excited was I????  It only lasted about 30 minutes on my desk before I HAD to use it!


I stamped out a few images and I colored them in with distress inks.  I normally don't do the 'messy' coloring, but I have to say - I really liked how it came out!  I layered the card above on a Nestie die and added some bling and ribbon.  Below, I kept it more simple with only one bling (one is the lonliest number....)

After I made it, I saw a post from The Spotted Chick about her 'That's Krafty Thursday" Challenge#49, so I am entering the card in her challenge!  The only challenge is to use kraft cardstock! Done!!

Hope you are having a terrific day!

Thanks for your visit!
